I have a project that involves e-mails Outlook forms to users via Access which they fill out and send back via Outlook. We can no longer use Outlook forms, so I've created a PDF Interactive form with Adobe Livecycle. What I would like to have happen is the same table that populated the outlook forms would populate the PDF form. Does anyone know of a way to do this?

Adapting that code would allow you to add text rather than graphics.
An alternative is to create a PDF form where the personalisations can be exported as managed 'form data'. This would allow you to create a text document (xml or other) that loads personalised content into a form. This might be a way of avoiding code that directly edits the PDF - you may still need code to create the input file though. An example is shown here http://livedocs.adobe.com/livecycle/...le=000396.html
Perhaps you need to do some research before deciding the best way for you to go. Try http://www.planetpdf.com/developer/l...ntainerID=1515 as a place to start. Googling for 'Acrobat form automation' or perhaps researching the Adobe product that is specifically targeted at producing large volumes of forms - Livecycle Designer.Andrew Lockton, Chrysalis Design, Melbourne Australia
